One Shot getting a new shot

The Northern Liberties coffee bar, preparing for a big move, signs a chef.

One Shot getting a new shot


When One Shot Coffee moves from Liberties Walk to a much larger building nearby in Northern Liberties, owner Melissa Baruno will get help in the kitchen, in the form of Michael Thomas.

Thomas just left the chef's post at Kraftwork in Fishtown; he'd previously worked across from One Shot at Bar Ferdinand. (Chef Brian Lofink is shuttling back and forth from sister operation Sidecar to run Kraftwork's kitchen.)

Thomas, who will oversee a breakfast/brunch operation at One Shot, says he needed a change in lifestyle, as he and his wife have a 4-month-old daughter and he wants to spend evenings at home.

One Shot is expected to be perking along in its new digs at American and George Streets in December.
